Congratulations to our Annual NOAA Marine Debris Program Art Contest winners, whom will be featured in the 2018 Marine Debris Calendar! This year, we received more than 500 entries from kindergarten to 8th-grade students with incredible visual messages on what we need to do to be the solution to ocean pollution. Thank you to all the students who participated in this year's contest!

HEIRS TO OUR OCEANS. That’s who we are, along with your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and newly-spawned zygotes.
Heirs to our oceans are the next generation and the future generations who will inherit this planet and all that comes with it…. after your generation is done with it.
We live just near the Pacific Ocean. We have learned about and seen the atrocities to our ocean. We have studied what is happening to know why action is needed to end the human impact on our planet’s oceans.
We are sad. We are mad. We are motivated. We are inspired. We are hopeful. We are tenacious.
And together we are taking action.
We are committing this next year, summer 2016 through summer 2017, to diving further into learning about the issues we and our oceans face. We will take you along in our voyage so that you too might learn and be inspired to join us in our efforts to ensure that the oceans and the magnificent and necessary life within them are on this planet, alive and well, for our generation and our children’s.
And, we are making a movie. No not a dull drab documentary. A movie. One that will move you, make you laugh, make you cry, make you excited, make you concerned, make you want to change, make you want to encourage others to change, make you want to join us.
We are the Heirs To Our Oceans, and we have a job to do.
Hop in and ride this wild wave with us.
